A Mother’s Love Is Unmatchable

And so is a mother’s trust. To curate rituals and ingredients for Petite Planet™, we took inspiration from the best of us: moms all over the world. They told us of how the cold air can be good for baby, how a tea leaf can help soothe skin, and how coconut oil can help comfort during massage. No matter where we went, one thing held true: that instinct to nurture and protect baby unites mothers all over the world. These are the stories we learned.

Moms throughout East Asian history have practiced the ritual of skinship. It’s bonding. It’s maternal. This skin-to-skin contact supports baby’s emotional well-being. And it’s at its strongest during bath time. East Asian mothers enhance this bath time skinship with soothing fragrances like lotus, and gentle cleansers like rice water, to make their bond with baby even stronger. It’s knowledge we’re proud to share.

Petite Planet™ Balancing Shampoo and Body Wash

Inspired by this East Asian ritual, we created the Petite Planet™ Balancing Shampoo & Body Wash. It’s rooted in the same tradition and contains those same two traditional ingredients.

Infant massage has been practiced in the African Savanna since the 14th Century. It’s a calming, soothing experience for baby that helps him bond with mom. And African moms made massage better with a secret ingredient: massaging with Karité. Karité comes from the shea nut, valued for its ability to soothe, moisturize and nourish baby’s skin. Shea butter, with vitamins and minerals, has been long treasured by African moms, and now we’re sharing that knowledge with moms around the world.

Petite Planet™ Nourishing Everyday Body Lotion

To bring this knowledge to every baby in the world, we made our PETITE PLANET™ Nourishing Everyday Body Lotion. It’s lightweight and non-greasy, perfect to smooth, moisturize and nourish delicate baby skin.

Moms in South Africa have long enjoyed the benefits of drinking rooibos tea. Its vitamins make it a key part of healthy skin. But rooibos has other benefits when applied to a baby’s skin. Its leaf is rich in vitamin C and zinc, making it a great solution for rough skin and minor rashes. This tea leaf’s versatility makes it a treasured piece of South African ritual that has carried on through the ages.

Petite Planet™ Multipurpose Healing Balm

We infused our soothing skin protectant balm with soothing rooibos in the tradition of these South African moms, taking advantage of years of maternal knowledge and care.

Ayurvedic Massage has long been a health ritual. Study has shown it helps strengthen circulation, relaxation, and bonding. It’s relaxing for mom, too. And coconut oil from Southeast Asia enhances a baby’s massage with its mild silkiness, and makes baby’s skin soft and touchable. Coconut Oil and massage are both long-trusted parts of baby skin care that we are proud to include in our line.

We’ve infused our PETITE PLANET™ Soothing Massage Oil with coconut oil from Southeast Asia.

Since the 1920s, Nordic moms have let their babies nap outside in the cold. They believe this practice helps baby’s circulation, immunity, and nap length. Even today, 95% of mothers in the Nordic city of Oulu enjoy the ritual of outdoor naps for their baby. We were inspired by these Nordic moms and are proud to share their wisdom.

The Nordic berry is a superfruit packed with essential Vitamin E, making it the perfect ingredient in our PETITE PLANET™ Wind & Weather Cream.
